Left Coast Cellars Calis Cuvee Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Left Coasts, dense and rich in color, Cali's Cuvée Pinot Noir has plentiful aromatics including purple plum, blueberry, blackberry, white pepper and crushed dried herbs. A juicy mid palate with earthy, spicy and toasty flavors wrap up into a tight mineral texture and refined tannins. The flagship Pinot Noir from Left Coast Cellars is a true snapshot of our terroir and a window to our estate, combining all the blocks and different clonal selections from our vineyard. Named in honor of Cali, our owners' daughter, the wine displays bright red fruit flavors, and a freshness that can only be found in the Willamette Valley. Food Pairing: Cali's Cuvée is a versatile and exceedingly food friendly. A perfect match for anything from the grill, including salmon, pork chops, and hamburgers. Also pairs beautifully with roast chicken, root vegetables, or perfect on its own.

Our estate consists of 306 acres, 100 of which are devoted to the cultivation of grapes. The topography of Left Coast is a bowl, with steep hills facing west, north and south, creating a natural amphitheater surrounding a large meadow and spring fed lake, central to the gravity fed irrigation of our vines. We have chosen to plant grapes on only the predominantly southern facing slopes. The remainder of the property is preserved as one of the last remaining stands of original old growth White Oaks in the area and also contains fruit orchards, meadows, lakes and streams. The bodies of water attract migrating birds and encourage birds of prey, helping to balance animal life in the vineyards. An increasing importance is being placed on the park like nature of the property through expanded gardening and flowering areas. Additionally, four acres of hazelnut trees, shrub roses and holly oaks were planted to foster the cultivation of European truffles that we view as a welcome complement to our fine wine production.
